""Today is International Day of Democracy, launch of 'Sansad TV' becomes more relevant. When it comes to democracy, India's responsibility increases. India is the mother of democracy. For us democracy is not just a constitutional structure, but a spirit, it's 'jeevan dhara.'"" - Prime Minister Narendra Modi
